The Labor Relations Manager represents the CEO during negotiations and is the primary point of contact regarding wages, hours, terms, and conditions of employment. Placer County has two bargaining units, Placer Public Employees Organization (PPEO) represented by Local 39 and the Placer County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (PCDSA).

  • Negotiates labor agreements with recognized employee organizations PPEO/Local 39, Deputy Sheriff’s Association (DSA) and In Home Support Services (IHSS)
  • Resolves contract disputes
  • Negotiates policy changes and side-table agreements
  • Provides guidance and policy advice to County management, CEO, and Board of Supervisors (BOS) regarding labor relations issues
